PODCAST 29: Right-sizing airline fleets for post Covid connectivity

Airlines need to be planning now for the revival in connectivity.

 

The newly appointed vice president for Embraer's commercial jet business in Africa, Middle East and Europe, Cesar Pereira joins Alan Peaford to talk about the changing demands on air travel and how right-sizing the fleet will lead to greater flexibility and profitability for the airlines.

As former head of Embaer Commercial’s consulting division, and until recently vice president for Asia, Pereira has in-depth knowledge of the airline industry and shares his thoughts about the future.

We also talk about changing to the regulations for voice and data recorders – the black boxes – and from January newly registered aircraft will be expected to have up to 25 hours recording time on voice recorders – and us much as 70 hours for data.

We hear from L3Harris’s senior sales director avionics, Stephane Chartier, about the new changes.

This, plus all the news from around the region – including a bid for Israel’s third biggest airline from a UAE aviation business.
